The Sprawl: Reconsidering the Weird American Suburbs

Auteur: Jason Diamond Narrateur: Peter Lerman Livre audio

For decades the suburbs have been where art happens despite: despite the conformity, the emptiness, the sameness. Time and again, the story is one of gems formed under pressure and that resentment of the suburbs is the key ingredient for creative transcendence. But what if, contrary to that, the suburb has actually been an incubator for distinctly American art, as positively and as surely as in any other cultural hothouse? Mixing personal experience, cultural reportage, and history while rejecting cliches and pieties and these essays stretch across the country in an effort to show that this uniquely American milieu deserves another look.
